As a public university, Salisbury University is governed by the same laws as any government body. That means that all members of our community enjoy the protections of the First Amendment. This freedom is essential, but it also has the potential to offend and even to hurt.
While the university cannot restrict these liberties, we offer many services to help students cope with the discomfort that the free and open exchange of ideas can bring. This section lists a series of resources where you can go to find support.
Student Accountability and Community Standards (SACS) is housed within the Dean of Students Office. We can provide an informal resolution process for student grievances as well as advice and referrals regarding student rights and grievances, including concerns such as arbitrary treatment, free expression, privacy, discrimination and sexual harassment.
The Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) supports and advances the University’s commitment to create an inclusive environment free of discrimination and supportive of all by leading campus efforts to manage all aspects of the Fair Practices/AA programs, as well as Title IX compliance, and weaves the diversity strategy throughout our campus. If you have experienced or have knowledge of sex discrimination, including sexual harassment, sexual assault or sexual violence, or other form of discrimination, there are resources and reporting options available to you. If you have decided to take action, we encourage you to contact the Office of Institutional Equity and/or law enforcement. If you would like to talk to someone, but you have not decided to take action, we urge you to consider the confidential support resources available to you.
To report conduct that is believed to be in violation of Salisbury University’s Fair Practices policies, please complete a Fair Practices Complaint Intake Form and contact the Office of Institutional Equity to schedule and intake meeting.
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion strives to create a truly diverse and inclusive environment where the richness of ideas, backgrounds, and perspectives of our community is harnessed to create value for our institution, today and in the future. They provide programming and educational resources for the campus community. If you would like to speak with someone in our office please contacts us at ODI@salisbury.edu.
